FINALLY PARADIGM IS COMING OUT APRIL 5th!

FINALLY it's happening. Woah. You open your email inbox and Jacob has finally announced that Paradigm is coming out. You slowly tuck the package full of airborne virus's under your bed, and relish in the fact you no longer have to commit a crime to appease the point-and-click adventure gods. All is good in the world. 

Just in case you missed it in the title, Paradigm is coming out April 5th! Before I get all mushy, CHECK OUT THIS NEW RELEASE TRAILER. 

PLZ SHARE PC4PC LIKE FOR LIKE

If you can please share it to every place you can! Every little bit counts and helps Paradigm have a strong launch, which can really help it build momentum quickly. Which also means I will be able to continue making really weird stuff. 

So now for more mushy stuff. Thank you all for holding on and supporting me for so long, I can't fathom how much you all mean to me, it really helped me push the project over the line. So much love <3 I've worked on this project all day everyday for so long now, it's almost surreal it's coming out soon. Just wait till how mushy I will get on release.

YO WHERE YOU AT?

So where am I at with the game? The game is finished, but needs more testing. I'm currently on round 2 of beta, almost moving onto round 3. (basically means all that is left on the game is fixing bugs so its as smooth and shiny on release) 

I will be also looking for extra play testers closer to the end who have a lot of time to spare to play the last builds of release to make sure it's ready. If you're interested, email me at j.janerka@gmail.com Also please. Only email me if you know 100% you have some time to play the game ASAP, not just so you can get an early play. 

WHERE THE OTHER REWARDS AT? 

I will be starting to focus on the art book/OST and the physical rewards ASAP after release. I may have to sleep for a week straight, but I will be getting on it as soon as I can. 

IS PARADIGM ON STEAM NOW?
Funny you ask that, yes, yes it is! Check it out here 

http://store.steampowered.com/app/600370/

WHAT ABOUT LINUX???

I will be able to get the Linux build out to you Linux backers on release, however I may need some testers before then. As for why it's not listed on steam, I have yet to figure out how to upload Linux build to their servers, however I'm currently in the process of figuring that now. 

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO NOW?

Descend deeper into the darkness of crunch and finally finish this game. See you on the other side. 

(Next update I will talk about all the cool VO talent Paradigm has on board :D)

Much love 
Jacob

      That's unfortunate.
      They do give you free keys if you ask for them. At least they did to any other kickstarter and developer.
      And yes, most of my collection is on GOG, as it as a true (and only) drm-free platform. Their advantages over humble, for me, they do their own installers for each game and are a lot better at keeping (and alerting) about game updates.
      GOG is basically the preferred drm-free platform for almost everyone. And I also use humble, but only for games not featured on GOG.

      Hey mate,

      Currently I don't have access to the GOG stuff, so sorry :( BUT you do get steam key, and DRM free build for the humble link. Exactly the same assets from GOG. ONly difference I guess it wont be in your GOG library.

      So, I just read your game will also be released on GOG. Contratulations on that!
      Any chance of having a GOG key instead of a humblebundle one? I rather have that even if it means no Steam (I don't even have a user for the store).

      Congratulations! My poor game backlog keeps growing though, lol.

    14. Jacob Janerka Creator on

      @rgnrk You will get an email from Humble Bundle once the game goes live which will provide you with DRM Free and the steam key :)

      @Heidi: :D

      @BigD: I think we can arrange something.

      Congratulations! Great news!
      And for those of use into drm-free and without Steam accounts (nor the will to have one), any idea where the drm-free version will be featured?

      Awesome. I'll miss sending you weekly death threats but if you'd like, I can probably arrange some serious drunk dialing at 3 AM instead.
